Weekly Capsule 13.3: New SandalsPosted: April 2, 2015 | |
These sandals are to replace my beloved heeled sandals, which I literally worn to the ground. They’re kind of similar in style, only this pair is more neutral and classic, so I think they’ll get even more wear. Plus they’re real leather, so I’ll get my money’s worth.
That’s one of the things I realized after the last 6 months of capsule wardrobe actually – shoes are definitely worth investing in. I learned this the hard way after moving home and having to watch all of the shoes I brought back fall apart. They may keep in the warm and dry climate of LA, but here in the humidity, they will sprout mold and crack and eventually become unwearable. So from now on, it’s real leather for me. They may be more expensive, and may require more care, but they last longer, and ultimately that makes more sense than buying new shoes every season.
